It's not the kind of curve crews at Target Field like to see. The storm that hit us Thursday night and Friday morning threw them a big snowball.

Monday is opening day and the rush is on to get the park ready and snow-free for players and fans.

Crews used hot water to melt snow in the stands and shoveled off the field.

The Twins say the park will be ready for opening day.

"This snow is not going to be an issue. We're ready for it, we're prepped for it, so by opening day you'll never know the snow was here," said Twins spokesman Kevin Smith.

Tickets still remain for the home opener.
